You're welcome. I hope it will help anyone looking for information
about this card. I've never found clear answer about this card. Alsa's
cards list is so outdated (most of the cards are not even produced) 

I though too, that USB 2.0 compliant, means «work with linux» but it's
not always the case. 
Remember : 

I've mailed Sound Devices at the time to make a change in the
firmware :

Hello xxx,

Thank you for contacting Sound Devices.  I don't know when or if they
will make this request available but I will gladly pass this request to
engineering for future firmware consideration.  Thanks.

Best Regards,

2011. Maybe next Christmas :)

Yep...the same here :) Happy with that.
Good soundcard, all the controls available. Known worse.
Still surprised from MOTO who in my memory is listed as «hostile» to

All the best.
